Jordan Gives Money for Temple Mount

Haaretz reports:

Jordan will allocate 1.113 million Jordanian Dinars ($1.5 million dollars) to the Jordan Hashemite Fund for the Reconstruction of Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock, King Abdullah II announced yesterday during a meeting of the trustees of the new fund… The fund will pay for a new fire detection system that will be installed in the complex of mosques, as well as a modern fire suppression system. In addition, the fund will acquire a fire truck that will be stationed near the Al-Aqsa Mosque. A team in charge of preserving mosaics and antiquities will also undergo further training at the expense of the new fund. Jordan’s decision to intensify its role in the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex stems in part from the presence of other Arab interest groups that have made increasing inroads there.
